Create your own rainforest environment at home with this plant and eco-pot combo!
This combination of Staghorn Ferm with its rare antler-shaped leaves inside a biodegradable handmade coconut fibre bowl Kokodama and a matching hanging rope will give your home an exceptional rustic touch and a rainforest vibe.
The Staghorn Ferns make great feature plants thanks to their broad, distinctive foliage that grows upwards, and of course, they receive their name due to their wonderful antler-shaped leaves and their unusual upper leaves that resemble stag's horns. Their lower drooping fronds often have an unusual disk that catches insects for nutrients. This fern can both climb and trail once it grows long enough and will thrive in high humidity levels, which make them ideal plants to place in your kitchen or your bathroom.
Our eco-friendly Kokodama bowls are made in Sri Lanka in collaboration with local communities, every bowl sold will help projects that give school children a better future, and they are an eco alternative to displaying the most beautiful plants at home.
But what is the correct spelling?
Kokedama: A Japanese tradition, they are bowls made with moss on which the plant grows.
Kokodama: Our Kokodamas are inspired on the Japanese tradition but made with coconut fibre, hence the slight variation on their name!
